Burlington and Wilmington are at their All Star break so I am interested to hear what RR thinks about Royals minor league player of the year. We haven't had a minor league report card for a while.
POY - Joe Dickerson - Wilmington (in a landslide). He has a .911 OPS, .325 Avg., 41 RBI on only 5HRs. Joe has stolen 23 bases also. Both those stats and KC has an everyday prospect! Wilmington is a pitcher friendly park so for me, that makes the numbers that much better. Honorable Mention - Mike Aviles (the new darling of online fandom).
Pitcher of the Year - I'll go with Edgar Cegarra and Carlos Rosa in a dead heat. Both dominated their respective leagues and got promoted early. Cegarra is only 19 years old so that is a huge plus. Rosa being in KC was a surprise but used correctly, he can get some valuable experience until Bale and/or Nunez return.
What do you think? Predictions for the second half? ?
